Quote from: Figleaf on June 30, 2011, 11:29:22 PMUp to 2010, Vatican coins did not circulate and were sold (way) over face value. Under pressure from the EU, the Vatican squeaked and issued some 50 cent coins that were in circulation for at least half an hour, I suppose. Not sure if San Marino ever issued euro coins at face, but it seems unlikely. Some of their pre-euro coins circulated, but that was related to coin scarcity in Italy.Peter

Quote from: coffeetime on July 01, 2011, 12:03:43 AMGiven that SM & V seem to be a grey area circulation-wise, I'm not inclined to include them. Do you own any of their euro sets, Andy?
Quote from: Figleaf on July 01, 2011, 11:57:13 AMPre-euro Monaco coins circulated freely in Monaco and even in Nice, though only the most used values turned up. Post-euro coins are issued at face but snapped up immediately and sold at a premium. Not all coins in sets are issued to circulation.Peter
